Triathlon multisport watches: 7 of the best reviewed
Multisport watches: 5 key functions to look for when buying

GPS pick-up and retention is pretty good. Just make sure you’ve fully connected with the satellite or else your data won’t catch up. The optical HR system is borrowed from the more expensive Vertix and does a solid job. The pulse oximeter should come into its own at altitude, which was tricky while locked down in Bristol, but in theory this is a useful addition to monitor acclimatisation time (although it won’t match clinical-grade devices).

Usability is okay. Two buttons sandwich a larger scroll dial that switches between the myriad features. It’s easily done, though clumsy hands – ours – can easily knock it when clambering over a log. There’s also a touchscreen for some sections that’s not really necessary, and a cumbersome security feature. The app is clean and concise but lacks the depth of its rivals. And at this price point, that’s arguably what you want. All in all, it’s not a bad device but not unique enough to challenge its older rivals. JW

Verdict: Solid offering that doesn’t quite do enough at a congested price point 70%
